Video: Looking back, Molly Newton '11 reflects on 'Why Bates?'
Through Commencement, we’ll offer brief videos of Bates seniors reflecting on their Bates experience.
Here, Molly Newton ’11 of Northampton, Mass., recalls how she answered a parent’s question: “Why is Bates different?”
The seniors’ comments come from a recent Trustee luncheon, where each year the Bates seniors in attendance respond to President Elaine Tuttle Hansen’s invitation to offer impromptu comments.
